already being trucked in cincinnati--and ends up one of two places, either at the little miami plant or here at the mill creek incinerator. but, as it stands now...unless a new plan is approved in the next 3 weeks...this will be the only spot. for decades, officials say trucks have been hauling human waste on our local roads...along side other drivers. 6 "well as long as they don't crash into me i think it's alright, it's a poop truck..but what else are they going to do? how else are they going to transport it?" hamilton county commissioner chris monzel says while no one likes the idea, it is a safe practice...that's working. 4 - :07 "these trucks are covered up, they are definitely protected. some are encased, but some are open and just have a cover on them." but, what could be changing now in cincinnati, is where that waste ends up. last year the epa deemed the little miami incinerator in the east end, out of compliance with it either needs to be upgraded, rebuilt or replaced of disposal facility. but, county
city previously agreed to a plan shut it down. and instead, invest 94 million dollars in to the only other waste incinerator in the city, here at the mill creek plant. 1 - :09 "they've kind of reversed that decision and they want to keep it operating because they do not want the trucks that are carrying the waste from the little miami incinerator to come through the city to the mill creek incinerator" so, now with just 3 weeks until the e- p-a deadline, local officials are working to file an extension... 3- :09 "we're not going to run anything illegally we're going to follow the law...but we want to make sure that we have a plan in place that we can show the epa that we will be in compliance with them no matter what we do" county officials tell me they are working with city officials to try and get the e-p-a to grant that extension...so they can continue to look for another solution. but, if no agreement is reached...the little miami incinerator will close march 21st. rl mo fox 19 now. developing now animation
